Niantic has just revealed another Pokemon GO event, this one honoring the Día de Muertos 2022 festival. November 1-2 sees the celebration of Día de Muertos, a day set aside in Mexico and other Americas to honor the memories and lives of those who have passed on to the other side.
For the third year in a row, Pokemon Go has chosen to commemorate the occasion by offering trainers all across the world a range of challenges and rare spawns. In an ancient Aztec tradition, it was said that the spirits of our loved ones never go away but simply travel to a different world, and during a special time each year, they would return to our world.
Ever since, people that celebrate Día de Muertos get ready for this occasion, setting the table with the favorite dishes of their ancestors, covering the streets with petals of the cempasúchil flower, and lighting candles and incense to enjoy a joyful celebration full of colors, music, flowers, and flavors.
